Relational Forms: Robert Bliss & Anna Campbell Bliss @ CUAC
Jul 3 all-day
Relational Forms: Robert Bliss & Anna Campbell Bliss @ CUAC | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Exhibition Dates: May 15 – July 11
Opening Reception: May 15, 7-9pm
CUAC Hours: Tues – Fri 11am-6pm, Sat 12-4pm

Relational Forms highlights select furniture pieces designed by architect, Robert Bliss presented with intricate, two-dimensional artwork by Anna Campbell Bliss. The Bliss’ moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1963 and have been influential figures in the art and design communities throughout the country. Robert Bliss was educated at Black Mountain College and MIT. He had a successful career as an architect in Minnesota before moving to Salt Lake City where he worked at the University of Utah as head of the Department of Architecture and later as Dean of the Graduate School of Architecture. Robert’s concern for architectural education, city planning, and preserving the environment continues to this day as he participates in local and national committees dedicated to historic building preservation and maintaining the constructed heritage of local communities. Robert’s furniture reflects modern designs emphasizing practicality without compromising a minimalist style.

Anna Campbell Bliss earned degrees from Wellesley College and Harvard studying math, art history, and architecture. Her paintings and prints displayed in this exhibition show a bridge of connection between these subjects and the more contemporary influence of computer science. Her precise screen-prints show her fascination with the complex relationships of color, geometry, pattern, and repetition.

Relational Forms is a traveling exhibition organized by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University and adapted for CUAC.
